Love it when I can learn through TV programs / conversations. Was watching a program about Finland & honestly, it was a huge insight into the culture & Finnish values. Other than the exemplary family-centric policies & support since 1937, the thing that rides deep in the Finnish heart is Sisu.
Sisu = courage, determination, tenacity, mettle, perseverance, persistence, power of will, sustenance against all odds.
Very apt reminder from a cultural insight. It’s the tenacity, sustaining through all odds, with unfathomable strength. Think I have been there at some intensity, but it spoke right to me.
Sisu. I will get there, just need to ensure I keep onto Him.
